It is believed that Mole was created by the nuns of the Order of Santa Clara in the 17th century Mexico. Traditionally accompanying poultry, Mole Poblano is a popular sauce prepared with dried chiles (mulato, ancho, pasilla and chipotle), ground nuts, ground tortilla, cocoa beans and a long list of spices such as coriander, allspice, clove and thyme- all ground into a thick, rich chocolate color paste.. This bar, made by conching and refining South American cocoa beans with Mole, plays on the tastebuds. It has depth, body and a mild pungency culminating in a pleasant heat. It is the balance of the multitude of ingredients in Mole that gives a richness and sophistication to this bar.
